Decade of Centenaries Community Grant / Deontas Pobail do Dheich mBliana na gCuimhneachán

The War of Independence in Waterford – What happened in your local area?

The Commemorations Committee of Waterford City and County Council invite Community Groups to apply for a community grant towards projects to commemorate the Decade of Centenaries in Waterford City and County.

Grants of up to €1000 are available for projects to commemorate the Decade of Centenaries in Waterford.

Waterford Commemorations Committee invite you to take a look at the Decade of Centenaries from a local perspective and bring to life the stories and history of your local area.

Why not try:

  • Tell your local story with a publication or presentation
  • Create a workbook for your local school to share your local history
  • Create a map of manoeuvres or an attack that occurred

Resources such as the Brigade Reports and the Military Service pensions made available by the Military Archives www.militaryarchives.ie ; local newspapers made available online combined with the memories and stories of local families can tell an important story of  life in Waterford at an important time in Irish history and how the people and places of Waterford contributed

We would love to hear the creative Community Projects that Community Groups come up with and how Groups approach their local history with curiosity, empathy and respect.

Please Note: Covid 19 public health directions must be adhered to in all projects.

Closing date for applications is: 4pm Friday 10th July 2020

For Application Forms see https://bit.ly/waterford100 or contact  the City and County Archivist, Joanne Rothwell archivist@waterfordcouncil.ie 0761102144 for further information.

This grant is part of the Decade of Centenaries projects funded by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. Check out www.decadeofcentenaries.com for more information and for details of events and projects throughout the country.
